The Cocoon Cam app pairs with the camera available at CocoonCam.com to provide breathing detection, video, and audio monitoring of your child.
Cocoon Cam works without wearables, so there’s no need to attach a potentially dangerous device to your baby. It uses cloud-based video image analysis to monitor your baby’s breathing and movement, which means that there are no harmful radiation waves, either. Our patent-pending software recognises patterns and identifies any time when your baby moves in a way that indicates danger.
All you need to do to set up Cocoon Cam is to purchase a camera and subscription at CocoonCam.com, download the app, and go through the guided installation on the app. In minutes you’ll be ready to keep your baby safe.

Parents! Don’t rely on the notifications
I love the idea, the breathing technology, and the fact that you use your phone as the camera...but unfortunately the algorithm for detecting cries and sleep changes seems to be WAAAY off. I actually have another camera that broadcasts a direct signal—no WiFi—to its monitor (for travel, etc) that is way cheaper and I use that to watch my infant daughter in real time...so I get a literal side by side comparison between that one and the cocoon cam all the time. As I said, unfortunately I’ve watched my baby cry or wail or yell for like 5 mins before the cocoon cam alert even goes off on my phone. Sometimes it doesn’t go off at ALL. If you don’t intend to let you baby “cry it out” from day 1, don’t expect the app to wake you up at night or let you know if your baby is crying on the other side of the house out of earshot. I had to warn my husband to use the second monitor when he’s home alone with her.
Also, the sleep detection is based on...who knows, because it needs work. Sometimes (often) I’ll get a notification on my phone that my baby is waking up or has fallen asleep and she hasn’t been in her crib for hours. In fact, nothing has moved in her crib for hours.
I have to say I still really like the app in some ways but I just wanted to warn all the new parents who haven’t figured it out yet...don’t rely on this app as the sole source for letting you know that your baby needs you!
Camera and customer service are good
I didn’t love or even like this product at first. I wanted this monitor to magically work for me even though I knew I wouldn’t be able to set it up according to the user manual (my fault not the product). My son is in a bassinet and not a crib and I’m using a fleximount instead of the wall so I should have known not to expect perfect results. I emailed the company to see if I could properly set up the monitor with a bassinet. Surprisingly, I received a very prompt response even though it’s Saturday. They asked me to send a screen shot of my set up so they could give me further instruction. I’m looking forward to seeing what they say. I already had it in my mind that I was going to return the monitor, but after setting up my old Motorola, I realized that the crispness/quality of cocoon is so much better! Even if I can’t get the breathing monitor and graph to work 100%, I still think the camera is worth it. I really like being able to see the colors that are indicating movement. I wish the notifications were louder and more obnoxious. I also wish I could have the option to make the notifications vibrate as well as make sound. I need more to get my attention because I’ve become immune to push notifications. Big flashing lights on the screen would be nice if no breathing was indicated. I’m very paranoid of SIDS and was really hoping for a miracle product. I may re-review after using this monitor for awhile.
Does not live up to its promises
The app constantly has to be updated or deleted and reinstalled. It closes when in use, notifications only work intermittently and the volume is inconsistent (we often have to close and re-open the app because we can’t hear anything with the volume turned all the way up). The alert tone options are very quiet and the one that is somewhat loud enough to actually alert the user lasts for way too long. It seems weird that the user can’t select other alert tones from their device. On the iPhone the alerts do not work at all if in do not disturb mode; which may be more of an iPhone issue than an issue with the app itself; I’m not sure. Customer support is useless. After emailing support, I was told troubleshooting has to be handled on the phone. The soonest phone call available was 8 days out at which time I was told that troubleshooting could only be handled via email or text. This app is supposed to help tired parents monitor their baby’s wellbeing and it greatly underperforms. We bought an old-school audio baby monitor because of all of the glitches with the app. Every time it seems like an update has been fixed by an update new ones pop up. When it works you get video and audio with a slight delay. On occasion it will give a bpm for short periods of time. I can not recommend this product.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
